At the age of just 21, Jenny suffered a massive brain stem heamorrhage and was given less than 1% chance of survival. Her journey of rehabilitation is truly inspirational.
The brain haemorrhage was caused by an abnormal blood vessel (AVM) that was congenital from birth which meant that no one knew it was there.
This traumatic injury drastically changed Jenny’s life forever. In a instant she went from being a fit, healthy young woman who was living life to the full to being on life support with no mobility, limited communication and a severe physical disability.
Jenny attributes her journey back to independence to keeping her sense of humour and a ‘never give up’ attitude as she overcame every new challenge to fully recover.
TADWA is proud to have been able to assist Jenny with home modifications to give her greater independence, and mobility solutions to enable her to get out and live life to the full again.
Jenny now writes about her journey in her “Wren to Rebuild” blog.
